The mission of Arizona Helping Hands is to provide basic needs for children in foster care… and so much more!

  • Twin bed set: New box spring, mattress, frame, mattress protector, set of sheets, pillow, and blanket

  • Crib: Mattress, crib, two crib sheets, quilt

  • Diapers and wipes: Provided through donation drives and special events

  • Dream Kit: Hygiene items including toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, brush, shampoo, etc.

  • New and gently used children’s clothing: The only non-new item 
that we provide

  • Safety equipment: To pass the state-mandated home inspection for licensed foster care homes, including fire extinguisher and customized first aid kit

We began when our co-founder, Kathy Donaldson, made a promise to her dying sister to “do one good deed a day and don’t take credit for it.” From those early days of holiday toy drives, we have continued to meet the needs of children in our community. The organization has served tens of thousands of children over the last 20+ years and continues to grow every year with the focus being on helping children in foster care.


As long as children are abused and neglected, and as long as drug and alcohol addictions riddle our society, there will be a need for foster care. Whether you need a hand or want to lend one, get in touch.
Together we can make a difference.
